    Industry Report - Starting a New Business Chapter

    New entrants to the Commercial Vehicle Wholesaling industry face moderate barriers to entry. New entrants are often foreign commercial vehicle manufacturers that aim to set up wholesaling operations in Australia to oversee the distribution of their vehicles. Barriers for these companies come in the form of regulatory restraints and significant competition. Commercial vehicle manufacturers and wholesalers have to abide by stringent Australian Design Rules for motor vehicles, while competition is fierce at each end of the market. Trying to establish a reputation within the industry and acquiring business from incumbent players can be difficult for new entrants, particularly without the expertise, experience and scale needed to provide quality service and vehicles at reasonable prices.
